CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chance the Rapper is getting ready to release his "Magnificent Coloring World" concert film next week.

And the Chicago Children's Choir is featured in the movie.

Josephine Lee, the president and artistic director of the Chicago Children's Choir, as well as Sophia Byrd, a choir alumna, joined ABC 7 Chicago Friday to talk about the film, which was shot during Chance's performance at a festival in 2016 and a performance at Lollapalooza.

Chance has collaborated frequently with the choir, they said.
